Although this date is the most common Type 1 gold dollar from the Dahlonega Mint, demand from type collectors has made it popular in any grade. The mintage is relatively small, but many were undoubtedly saved as first-year-of-issue souvenirs. Partial prooflike examples are sometimes seen. Even though many were saved as first year of issue, high-grade examples are very rare. Only a couple survive that could be classified as gems. The mint state coins seen are usually MS61 or MS62. Most coins that are seen however are well worn, with the average coin being Very Fine or Extremely Fine. NGC has certified a single example in MS65, but that coin has not traded at auction. Last auction for a MS63 was for 19,975 in 2016. Check out all the great US Coins, Currency, Ancients, World and Exonumia.
